New iKid Reward Charts makes Behavior and Reward Charts Easy

Reward Charts Work

As a parent of two, one of the most difficult tasks we have is to encourage our kids to do their chores. Back in my day, I got my chores done mostly out of the fear of the consequences, but I didn’t want my kids to be in constant fear of “negative reinforcement.” After looking around, my wife and I found out that research has shown that Positive Reinforcement is a much more powerful force for training.

Disney Junior Appisodes

Disney Junior Appisodes | Price: FREE

Last year Disney released a fantastic app based on the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse episode “Road Rally.” They called the app an “appisode,” which meant that it was basically the episode of the Disney Junior show turned into a game with long clips from the show.

More Trucks HD - by Duck Duck Moose | Price: FREE

A sign of a good kids game for the iPad is how long a child plays with it. Based on that theory, the new app by one of my favorite kids app developers Duck Duck Moose called “More Trucks HD” should be a hit. After installing the game on my iPad I let my five year old take it for a spin. Ten minutes later I could not get him to give me the iPad. He was to engrossed in having a crane pull boxes over to a wrecking ball and have a bulldozer clean up the mess.
